This morning we decided to do a bit of touring. Our selection was
What a great day for a bit of a walk. Cool with a slight breeze. This refuge encompasses over 3,600 acres of natural North Central Texas. There are over 20 miles of nature trails.
This trail was about 1.5 miles and took us down to the water where we observed a flock of pelicans.
Did not see much other wildlife unless you count this beauty.
Along the path is this pavilion. Does not look like it gets much use any more.
In the midst of the refuge is the nature center.
Inside are displays of various snakes, amphibians, turtles, fish native to the area. Even this little guy who came out of his box for a bite of lunch.
Behind the center was another short path which leads to limestone cliffs overlooking the merging of two streams. Looking down gave me the promise of Spring. I could see some greening of the trees and bushes.
Our next walk was about a half mile on a boardwalk over marsh area. Due to lack of recent rain, no marshy spots at all.
Our last stop was to look at these fellows.
There were about 15 bison fenced in along with a Prairie Dog town. A bison and his little friend who is in the foreground.
After the visit we stopped at Best Buy to see how the transferring of data from Toshiba to my new Dell is coming along. Should be done by tonight or tomorrow morning.
Seeing as we burned some calories with today's walk, what did we do? Had lunch at Pizza Hut.
